I think the most "shy" grandmaster I ever heard of was Akiba Rubinstein. On Wikipedia,it says that he used to make his move,then hide in a corner of the tournament hall and wait for his opponent to reply.However,its Wikipeida.It could be someone making up the info.
|Feb-23-11|| ||alexmagnus: Rubinstein was not shy, he was ill. Panic fear of humans is somewhat different than plain shyness...|
|Feb-23-11|| ||Penguincw: < alexmagnus:Rubinstein was not shy,he was ill.Panic fear of humans is somewhat different than plain shyness... > That's why I put <shy> in quotes.|
|Feb-23-11|| ||wordfunph: <alex> <Penguin>|
ok ok they're both shy, shy to beat us in chess.. :)
|Feb-23-12|| ||wordfunph: "I haven't figure out why I usually play badly in Vietnam. May be I will change my method when playing with familiar opponents. It's very hard to play in Vietnam."|
- GM Nguyen Ngoc Truongson
happy birthday GM Ngoc!
|Feb-23-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday!|
|Nov-08-12|| ||Abdel Irada: I'm not sure if the <ChessGames.com> database sample represents this player's career, but the win-loss ratio we see on this page is quite astounding.|
|Jan-30-13|| ||wordfunph: <chessgames.com> thank you for posting Vietnam's #2 player GM Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son.|
the pic was taken during the 3.3 Zonal Championship in Tagaytay City. Second seed GM Ngoc finished solo champ with 7.5/9 clip to book his World Cup campaign in Norway this August.
before his victorious game against GM Paragua, i saw him relaxing outside the playing venue listening to music. During games, he usually takes a stroll around the venue watching games.
this young amiable GM will go a long long way..
goodluck GM Ngoc "The Stroller" Truong Son!
|Feb-22-13|| ||wordfunph: GM Ngoc, chúc mung sinh nhat!|
|Feb-23-13|| ||Benzol: < In 2004, he was voted as athlete of the year in Vietnam. >|
In the picture he looks frail. Mind you, you can look frail and play ferocious chess. Just look at photos of Karpov around 1972 for example.
|Feb-23-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 24th birthday to Ngoc Nguyen!
M Vachier-Lagrave vs Ngoc Truongson Nguyen, 2000
Not bad. In his first game in the database, he beats a super GM with the black pieces.
|Mar-15-14|| ||twinlark: <Penguincw> Nguyen is 8 months older than MVL.|
|Jul-25-14|| ||zanzibar: Sorry, but I'm at it again.
Why is his name <Truongson> on <CG>?
His given name is <Son>, and he has two middlenames, that is, if I understand my recent Vietnamese name lessons properly.
According to Wiki his full name is: <Nguyễn Ngọc Trường Sơn>
And unlike Le Quang Liem, <CG> uses Westernized ordering for Mr. Truong Son ( http://thethao.vnexpress.net/tin-tu... ).
|Aug-10-14|| ||wordfunph: sizzling +5=2-0 in Tromso!
|Aug-11-14|| ||wordfunph: make it 7/8 for 2856 tpr!
|Aug-12-14|| ||Mr. V: <Zanzibar> I second your confusion about the names. In addition, if Ngoc is his given name, then I'm very suprised- I've only heard of it as a woman's name.|
|Aug-12-14|| ||Bruce Graham: <Zanzibar> and <Mr. V.> you are both correct. Nguyen is the most common surname in Vietnam. <Mr. V> Sometimes in Vietnam I encounter boys with girl's names and vice-versa.|
|Aug-14-14|| ||wordfunph: board #2 Gold medal in Tromso Olympiad, congrats GM Son!|
|Aug-14-14|| ||ketchuplover: Kudos!|
|Dec-16-14|| ||twinlark: Congratulations to GM Nguyen winning the Vietnamese Championship.|

|Feb-23-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Ngoc Trupngson Nguyen.|
